I'm 44 & pregnant with my first & only child

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, January 24, 2007 | 0 comments

I'm 44 and have just found out I'm pregnant. This will be my first (and only) child. The father wants me to terminate and it looks like I'm going to be doing this alone.

I've never really thought of myself as being "middle aged" before because I don't feel that way. And neither have I worried too much about what other people think, but all of a sudden I'm terrified of walking my little baby and people commenting on my grandchild!


I am 44 and have a 2 year old little boy. He is the love of my life. I just found out that I am pregnant again, and am thrilled. You shouldn't feel "too old" - your baby will bring you so much joy.


I just took an EPT home pregnancy test as I was two weeks late . POSITIVE! I am scared to death. I have a son going off to college in 10 days and two high school aged sons. With my age at delivery being 44, I am worried. I am afraid to get excited as I suspect the odds of delivering a healthy full term baby are not good.


I am 45 and due on 10/28 with my 3rd. I have a 20 year old from 1st marriage, and a 4 year old from this marriage. I was stunned when I learned I was pregnant. I had 2 previous miscarriages. I found out at 10 weeks and I walked on eggshells until I hit 12 weeks. I am 28 weeks and I still worry.


I am 44 years old and I am 36 weeks pregnant with a very normal, healthy, little girl. I have 3 children who are between the ages of 20 and 25 (and they are all very supportive and excited about their new sibling)

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
